Genie Jan's Genealogy Addiction
Search this site powered by FreeFind

Hi! My name is Jan and I have become addicted to genealogy. I used to have several other hobbies and a much cleaner house, and we used to be able to eat at the table which I have now confiscated into a genealogy research center! But then I found the fun and joys of tracing my family tree. So, search around and see what you find.

In trying to keep things somewhat organized I have assigned each family group a color. All of that families information will be on pages of the same color. Also, on the right hand side of every page there is a link that will take you to the surname section for that family, which includes descendant charts and pictures! I believe that I have organized things so that any time you see a word in black that is underlined you can just put your mouse on that spot and click it and it will take you to another page on my site. Every page also has a box in the upper right hand corner that is a search engine for my site. So, if you just type in a name or location it will then search all the pages and let you know where it found those word (or words).

If you have any corrections or additions to make I would love to hear from you. And as with all research this is a work in progress, and I am sure there are errors and mistakes. Early on in my research I was not very good about source citation, and through the last few years I have learned my lesson (time and time again). In addition I may have had contact with some of your 'lost cousins' and will gladly share their e-mail address with you.

I would suggest that any of you that are just starting out on your quest to read some of the 'How to' info that is out on the web or in some of the great books that have been written. Some of the info here is my own research and some of it is what others have kindly shared with me. So, in the interest of giving due where it is needed, please don't copy the information here without first checking with me. And please don't submit the info to any of the fee based sites on the web. I am a believer in keeping genealogy free, and hate to see my research for sale! Well, enough said. Search around and e-mail me with any suggestions (or leads!).

Right now I am hot on the trail of finding the parents of Philip Cline b.ca1777 and d.1853 in Portage Co., Ohio and am working (eternally) on finding the parents of Benjamin Edenburn/Eddiburn 1802 in Ohio or possibly Pennsylvania and died in 1849 in Guernsey Co. or Tuscarawas Co. Ohio. Happy researching and good luck digging up your roots!


P.S. In the interest of privacy there is nothing here about any living persons. So, please don't ask me to add anything about anyone that is still alive. And yes, this site is best viewed using Internet Explorer. Yup, I know how lots of folks feel about Microsoft, but IE really does have some good points about it. Feel free to contact me if you find any broken links or have any feedback.
